Venice Biennale – Poland

The Polish work by Konrad Smoleński titled “Everything was Forever until it was no more,” is an impressive sound art work consisting of two huge bells which ring every hour for five minutes or so. The sound from the bells is recorded in some manner and played back through huge decks of speakers at either end of the gallery creating a mixture of reverb and other tonal sounds. Highly effective and VERY loud.
